  Re: [Aroid-l] Aspidistra lurida 'Milky Way'

Hello
That link takes us to an empty Book page. 
I grow both species, and elatior is a huge plant, and lurida is diminutive in comparison. They are quite distinct. I have never seen an elatior-sized "Milky Way." I would maintain that they are A. elatior, and A. lurida Milky Way. 


The species is different, but here is a link to an Aspidistra 'Milky Way':

I cannot address the finer points of taxonomy. However, Hortus III suggests
that most material sold under the name of A. lurida is, in fact A. elatior..
